NC pitches early Assembly polls in J&K, urges Oppn to join hand
Srinagar: After boycotting municipal and Panchayat polls, the National Conference(NC) has upped the ante and sought early Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir.
“Hold elections, and the people of Jammu and Kashmir, not New Delhi, will choose the government they want for themselves. BJP may attempt to get the polls delayed for the fear of imminent defeat due to its misgovernance and failure in keeping up the promises,” said Dr Farooq Abdullah, National Conference (NC) president.
He hailed Governor Satya Pal Malik’s decision to dissolve the Legislative Assembly and said that this opened up the means to get rid of the “corrupt lot” from power.
Dr Abdullah said a stable and strong government alone can lead the state to peace and development. “The alliance on crutches do not suit the state which is facing numerous challenges. National Conference will get peoples’ massive mandate,” he added.
He have a clarion call to the opposition parties across the spectrum to shun trivial differences and make the Mahagathbandhan stronger to take on the government in New Delhi.
“It is upon the Opposition to unite for the unity of India. The nation has no threat from China or Pakistan, but from the forces inimical to secularism and inclusive ethos of India. Neither Lord Ram nor Allah need votes. Politics of hate has done immense harm to the country,” he said.
